Jean-Michel Jarre rang in 2021 with a groundbreaking live performance from a virtual reality Notre-Dame cathedral. The show, which combined life-like concert visuals in VR with a real live studio performance, introduced a mixed-media approach which was the first of its kind. It attracted a staggering audience of over 75 million viewers globally. This historic achievement saw Jarre top the Pollstar chart for livestreams, out-performing the entire top 10 combined.

Renowned for his epic and high-tech concerts in iconic landmarks, it was fitting that Jarre should continue this trend despite the pandemic. The musician designed, built and performed in the VR venue, which was accessible on all available formats, from TV and radio to online video, social media platforms in the East and West, and a fully immersive experience using a VR headset.
